MP 7973 IR to RF to IR Wireless Infrared IR Remote Control Extender Kit

 

 

 

 

  • Converts an Infrared (IR) signal to Radio Frequency (RF) back to Infrared (IR)
  • Transmission range of 100 Meters (328 Feet)
  • Includes IR transmitter (emitter) cables with various lengths
  • Arc shaped design for wide IR receiving range
  • Low power consumption

 

You’ve got your stereo system speakers installed on your back porch so you can enjoy your music. Unfortunately you can’t change the volume without running back into the house and physically adjusting the volume control on your receiver, and you don’t want to install a wall-plate volume control. This IR to RF to IR Wireless Infrared IR Remote Control Extender Kit is the solution.

This wireless IR extender converts the IR signal into an RF signal at 433.92 MHz, for transmission to the receiver unit, up to 100 meters away, through walls, doors, ceilings, and floors, or whatever. At the receiving end, an IR cable with three bulbs (emitters) repeats the IR signal from your remote to up to three individual components, so you can use it up for your cable/satellite receiver, DVD/Blu-ray player, and an audio receiver.

Typical IR remote controls have a limited range and require line of sight with the component you are trying to control. With this IR to RF to IR Wireless Infrared IR Remote Control Extender Kit you can have your Audio Video (AV) components in another room, closet, equipment cabinet or entertainment center behind closed doors, and still have control.  Read More

Vanco 280731 CFL Resistant 1x6 Home Theater IR Repeater Kit with Mini Surface-Mount Receiver

  • Pass IR signals through doors/walls to control hidden AV components without line of sight
  • CFL Resistant mini surface-mount IR Receiver accepts signals from up to 40 feet away
  • Two included IR emitters stick directly onto your AV equipment – supports up to six IR emitters
  • IR receiver and IR emitters work with existing remote controls
  • IR Receiver works in most lighting environments and is CFL resistant
  • LED status indicators on connecting block

The Vanco 280731 CFL Resistant 1×6 IR Repeater Kit is a great way to control your home theater components that are located inside of a media cabinet or in an AV equipment closet. Most AV components are controlled via an infrared (IR) remote control that requires a line of site to work between the remote control and the component(s). So components located behind closed doors can’t be controlled unless the doors are open, which defeats the purpose. An IR repeater kit solves this problem. The mini surface-mount IR receiver is the only item that needs to be visible. It receives IR commands from your remote, passes it through the connecting block and distributes the signals out through the IR emitters. This system allows you to keep a cable or satellite TV receiver, stereo receiver or amplifier, CD player, DVD player, Blu-ray player, or virtually any component controlled by an IR signal behind closed doors so you can use your remote control like normal.   Read More
